like michelle obama's first speech, too. secondly, i think when he -- we wrote about this in the "huffington post." when barack obama came into office it was with the idea you could change the way politics operated. instantaneo instantaneously, largely because of the economic crisis he inherited, he had to be an operative inside the political system, play an inside game, get a stimulus passed. when they were crafting health care, they had to cut deals or thought they had to cut deals. i think what changed everything is the debt ceiling deal. they tried to negotiate something there. it blew up in their faces. they said, you know what, rather than catering to the political realities, we have to shape the political realities. it hasn't necessarily been successful. the jobs bill still stalled. they got the bpayroll tax cut. it's a different type of politics than we saw in the first years and it's carried over into this election. >> alex, isn't this to some extent a question of language and tone? actually, over the last couple years much more so barack obama since the debt
taxful politicians were named ann and michelle. this is how i saw it when michelle obama first entered the arena. she took a look to see what it would look like from the stage. and two weeks ago, who would have thought that weather would threaten to completely disrupt these carefully laid plans. and of course it did. it canceled one night of the republican convention and forced the democratic convention inside. this is what topical isaac looked like from my hotel room. so as bill clinton said in 1988, in closing, if you need more proof that conventions still matter, they're still fun and are still fascinating, if you need more proof that you really can't touch this, i offer you this, mc hammer. see, conventions do matter. if you want to see more of these pictures, come visit our blog, cnn.com/earlystart. we have more pictures there. worth looking at. all right. moving back now, one of the most inspirational stories from this year's u.s. open, it isn't from a tennis player. it's from military vet who has overcome the oddsputee and is now a ball assist taptan to. an amazing story. go to
job speaking to. he comes into this speech with a 69% approval rating. michelle obama the night before has high approval ratings. it's a powerful one-two punch, two of the only national politicians that have ratings like that. most politicians just don't get that high anymore. >> a former republican consult and who made ads for none other than mitt romney came on cnn after the speech and said they should shut down the convention right now. that was the speech that may have elected barack obama. that's pretty out there. >> i wonder if alex is getting calls from his republican friends saying, hey, tone it down, alex. >> it is true. you asked the question about who he's trying to reach. i think that there are no question that there are -- i mean, you probably know some personally, people who are 2008 obama supporters who just are disappointed in him. and disappointed in what he has done. and for president clinton to do this and not just give, i think you're right, a lawyerly explanation of why, but also to give it in a wa i thatting loos like he's emoting and he means it, it's hard to --
of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now
and never forgets 11 years after the 9/11 attacks. the president and first lady, michelle obama, joining defense secretary leon panetta at the pentagon a short while ago for the laying of the wreath there. all 64 people onboard american airlines flight 77 as well as 120 people inside the pentagon killed when al-qaeda hijackers crashed the passenger jet into the headquarters of america's military. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is with us now. jennifer, the scene outside the pentagon, what was it like today? >> reporter: well, jon, it's been a day of perfect blue skies that are reminiscent of that 11 years ago. the president and mrs. obama made their way from the white house where they had observed a moment of silence, there was another moment of silence that was observed here after they laid the wreath. it was exactly at the moment, 9:37, when american airlines flight 77 struck the pentagon behind me. >> the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division, it will be a safer world, a stronger nation and a people more united than ever before. god bless th

, the first lady, michelle obama, perhaps the president's secret weapon, making, what, 11 visits to north carolina since 2009? talk about mrs. obama's appeal there. >> well, she has stressed military families and helping them and, of course, north carolina has a very strong military presence with fort bragg and camp lejeune, the marine base. so military issues are very important. it's a way -- she's much more popular than her husband is here, and it's a way to portray herself and to portray, sell the obama administration in a very nonpartisan way because it has broad support, it goes across party lines, of course. arthel: and then, rob, you mentioned that 2008 election. of course, the obama/biden ticket getting 49.70% of the votes there, the mccain/palin ticket, 9.48. so close -- 39.48. so close. so i ask you, what is it about the politics of north carolina that makes it such an enigma? >> well, there's a couple things going on here. first of all, it's a upper-tier southern state, it's much more like virginia than a deep south state, so it's always been much more moderate. we've had 20 ye
elitists than barack and michelle obama. they're friends with jay-z and beyonce. did i miss something? is hanging out with jay-z and beyonce a thing regular people do now? >> that's a fair point. >> everyone's always saying i'm unrelatable because i had a horse in the oolympics. let me tell you what, i would kill that horse if i could meet beyonce. >> yeah. so "saturday night live" back in force this season. >> i got to tell you, that is a beautiful horse. i followed that very closely. i did. i loved that horse. why are you laughing at me. >> what you took away from that was the horse. >> you know, the political jokes are funny, too. horse, fabulous. >> they miss sarah palin. >> they need big characters to be able to spoof. that's been challenging. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," important information for your bank account today. why you'll be paying more in overdraft fees and atm charges. a bit of a bummer. we'll explain why. >>> a desperate search is on for survivors after the avalanche in one of the world's tallest moments. a report on the rescue effort coming up
of the president and michelle obama meeting with the latest from the view. jim in pittsburgh, pennsylvania, the republican line. caller: i think every free country should get out of the united nations. itthe muslims are not going to t along with anyone, so why try to pacify them? england, the united states, get out of the united nations. i'm tired of hearing hate speeches from people from other countries condemning us. this is a united nations of hate. host: if you go to the united nations web site, it says -- what you think? caller: i think at the time it was probably a good thing, but i don't think they counted on the rise of communism from china and russia and on the muslims and i think the muslims are a big problem with the united nations right now and we should stop trying to pacify them. we have a wenow who seems to sit there and watched-- we have a president now who seems to sit there and watch it. all he has been doing is apologizing. they killed two of our soldiers in afghanistan and the apologized to them. when the embassy was attacked, it was the man who had the movie's iffault.
to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. myan't imagine watching husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? i think that they are thinking it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a man at the helm tamp they don't her down too much. -- because she is so human, i hope they don't tamp her down too much. she is looking right at you, our eyes are
a handwritten card. the card reads, "michelle and i wish you a great life together, barack obama." >> i totally bet they didn't register for that. >> can you imagine? >> what a great story zp. >> in iowa, the president and mitt romney keep dropping in. and it's hard to get caught in traffic in iowa. >> it's a really nice gesture, really, really is. >>> we want to check in with rob marciano, get a sense of how it's looking for the weather. >> it's getting cold. >> that time of year, get in the mood for it. a little frost on the pumpkins across upstate new york and parts of northern new england. temperatures in the 30s, and in some cases, in the 20s. saranac lake reporting a 27-degree temperature right now. so 55 in new york, comfortably cool. grab a light jacket. we have some frost and freeze advisories in effect for this morning and will likely be re-posted as we get toward the weekend, because we'll get a couple successive shots of cooler air. so no dramatic warm-up, back to indian summer just yet. looking at showers and thunderstorms, another little front cruising across the great lakes. and
there next to the iranians and that program is moving very, very fast. >> listen to what michelle florny, a president of the president campaign national security committee says in defining the way they perceive -- the obama administration perceives this so-called red line. it's very different than the way the prime minister explained it today. >> well, i think we have laid out a red line. and that is iran cannot actually get a weapon. >> that's very different than what the prime minister says. she's willing to give it more time as opposed to reaching that 90% threshold which is the israeli position. >> i think you have to look at what the prime minister how he framed it today, wolf. he said the question is not when iran gets a weapon or even decides to make a weapon. the question is at what point can we no longer stop iran from making that weapon? and that's what that red line was about. he was drawing a line between the medium enriched uranium and the high enriched uranium and beyond that point it will be virtually impossible for us to stop that bomb because they will put that bomb toge
